Discover the beauty and craftsmanship of our new powder glass African beads, expertly handcrafted by the talented artisans of Kroboland in Ghana, West Africa. These stunning beads imitate the intricate designs of old Venetian glass trade beads, making them a unique addition to any collection.

  • Strand length: Approximately 20 1/2" (52 cm)
  • Bead size: Approximately 12 mm in diameter

YOUR STRAND WILL BE IDENTICAL TO THE STRAND SHOWN IN THE PHOTOGRAPH (GIVEN NORMAL VARIATION SINCE THESE BEADS ARE ALL COMPLETELY HANDMADE).

Made from recycled bottles and other glass items, these beads are crafted by crushing the glass into a fine powder and then molding it into beautiful, vibrant beads. Each bead is 100% handmade, ensuring that your strand will be identical to the one shown in the photograph, given normal variations since these beads are all completely handmade.

The artisans in Ghana's Krobo region have perfected this technique, reflecting a deep cultural heritage and a commitment to sustainability. The process of creating these recycled glass beads not only preserves traditional craftsmanship but also supports the local economy and reduces environmental waste.

Trade beads have played a significant role in the history of Ghana and Africa, serving as symbols of trade, communication, and cultural exchange. By choosing these beads, you are embracing a piece of this rich history and supporting the continuation of these important traditions.
